White House Buckles in For Hurricane Florence

Several residents fled the coast under both mandatory and voluntary evacuations. Storm surge of 13 feet on top of a high tide at 7 feet could overwhelm Carolina Beach.

It was set to inundate nearly all of North Carolina in several feet of water, State Governor Roy Cooper told a news conference, while National Weather Service forecaster Brandon Locklear predicted up to eight months of rain in two or three days.

An estimated 10 million people live in the storm's path, according to the US Weather Prediction Center, and coastal businesses and homes were boarded up in anticipation. "This is a storm that is historic, maybe once in a lifetime".

The entire coastlines of North and SC, in addition to some parts of southeastern Virginia, are under a mandatory evacuation plan. Further inland, rain totals could reach 30 centimeters in the Carolinas, and up to 24 centimeters in the rest of the Carolinas and in southwestern Virginia.

"I don't care if this goes down to a Category 1", CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

It was located 575 miles (925 kms) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and moving at 17 mph (28 kph) in a west-northwest direction.

More than 80,000 people were already without power as the storm approached, and more than 12,000 were in shelters.

General O'Shaughnessy said there were about 7,000 U.S. military personnel now in place and ready to respond to the storm, along with ships, helicopters, high-wheeled vehicles and other equipment.

As Florence drew near, U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that FEMA and first responders are "supplied and ready", and he disputed the official conclusion that almost 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico, claiming the figure was a Democratic plot to make him look bad. "The power is going to go out". When fierce winds keep up for a long time, homes are "going to start to deteriorate".

The mayor of Carolina Beach, North Carolina, said authorities have stopped allowing traffic to the island via the only bridge between the island and the mainland. "Not anxious in the least". The main highway in the Outer Banks was closed in parts as seawater pushed in.
